Each year we select a theme for our State Summer Games. This year’s theme is “DREAMS MADE HERE.”
I often wonder if during the course of their lives our athletes are ever asked what their dreams are. I decided to take it upon myself to ask a number of them about their dreams. I am happy to share their responses with you.
Marina – “One day I want to be a Special Olympics coach or be involved in planning one of our Games. I think I would probably be a pretty good fundraiser, too, so I would like to help with that.”
Kenny – “After competing in the World Games in Ireland, my dream is to go back there for a visit. Top of the morning to you.”
Ashli – “When I grow up my dream is to have a family and work in special education.”
Sarah – “I have a dream. I want to go to a National Games and play volleyball.”
Terrance -“My dream is to go to Central New Mexico University and better myself. I want a new journey.”
Over 900 Special Olympics athletes will be competing in our State Summer Games this year, and they will come with dreams of winning a medal, having people cheer for them, being asked to dance, or spending time with old friends. The point is – they will be in a place where those dreams can happen. It is our privilege to help them come true.
